Justification of Red List category
This species has a highly restricted and fragmented range, and it is likely to have a moderately small global population size. Declines are suspected to be occuring owing to habitat loss, although montane populations (and those in secondary habitats) are likely to be relatively secure. It is therefore considered Near Threatened.

Population size: Unknown mature individuals

Population trend: Decreasing

Distribution size (breeding/resident): 7,800 km2
